Dave, where did you route the intake and exhaust for the heater? Thanks.

Thanks. Seeing yours done was a big instigator to finally acquiring one myself.

I'll post a pic when I hook it all up. I'm basically going to route it over to the driver's side wheel well. The mount I made for the heater elevates it above the metal apron so there is enough room to make the bend in the exhaust tubing. I'll also add some heat shielding to it...just in case.

I'm thinking of building a 1915 for this one too. I am hoping that will be plenty of power. The 1600 still runs, so it is something I can do over the course of the winter.

Did all my modifications to my front beam and got it installed. Sits a bit higher than expected. I may have miscalculated the orientation of the adjusters I welded in. I may have to take the beam back off and cut those adjusters free and weld them back in at slightly less angle.

I did some beefing up of the beam while I had it out of the car. I also drove sections of the old sway bar into the each tie rod to strengthen them.

It is starting to look good though. :)

......... does  the height issue  have bearing on  the caster?

Not really. The arms cycle through the same geometry as stock. I just "pre adjusted"  the adjusters a little much when welding them in. I want it to ride nice...not like a truck. The adjusters control the spring preload is all. :)
